    Hi All
    People told me SEO is the cheapest way to make sales online. However, I used SEO on Google, eBay and my Website. but I still no sales. I lost confidence for selling online. Can anyone advise me if SEO really works for e-commerce?

    Many thanks in advance

    Yes it does but there is SEO and then there is SEO, how it is done can make a massive difference and done properly it is an ongoing job taking a fair amount of time, even done properly it takes time to see results (how long depends largely on competition).

    So by saying you have "used SEO" what is it that you have done? This way others may be able to better advise.

    I get a security warning when I try to visit your site. Safari says it can't verify the identity. If everyone is seeing that it's no wonder you have no traffic.

    I get a warning on chrome browser for android too (not tried anything else yet).

    @sskimins do you use a shared SSL? If not then I would advise contacting your SSL provider / host to ensure it is installed & signed correctly as this warning will cost you visitors.

    I can't see the blog anywhere on your website? How long did you have it going for?
    Also I can't seem to find a company address anywhere on the website.

    I didn't go to the site because of the warning so I'm sure others will do the same.

    If there is a security warning, the search engines may be blocking it as well, and not displaying it as prominently as they may otherwise.

    No security warning here (IE10) but thee siite loaded really slow for me. And as above no address (VAT number if applicable) which really puts me off.

    I think you don't exactly know what SEO means. SEO is a means to obtain a good position in google. But it's not because you attract traffic that you will make sales. Selling online is all about trust. Building that trust is a combination of several factors. A security warning when opening the site or a lack of contact data are one of the things that will undermine the trustworthy of your site.

    Maybe it's my computer but the quality of the pictures in the banner ( slider image) is not so good, a bit pixelized. Everything else is fine though !
